apricotica:

I’m in a great mood and feeling very positive and cheerful, so here’s a nice little piece of terrifying industrial metal concerned with the topic of thrill killing in a culture that glorifies violence.

Ministry - So What

I only kill to know I’m alive

I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.

that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.

I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!

Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

Where are the protests for trans women of color murdered this summer?

rafi-dangelo:

Michael Brown.  John Crawford.  Eric Garner.

America knows these names because, thankfully, the media hasn’t let us forget them.  These are young Black men murdered this summer because this country has a problem with race, prejudice, bias, and an assumption of guilt in respect to people of color.

Mia Henderson.  Alejandra Leos.  Tiffany Edwards.

We don’t know these names because the media isn’t paying attention.  These are young trans women of color who’ve also been murdered this summer, but we’re not talking about them.  No one is advocating for the six trans women of color murdered this summer. There are no panel discussions on cable news or articles devoted to investigating their innocence and disproving any basis for a justifiable homicide because trans women — especially trans women of color — are always guilty.  They’re guilty because they dare to exist and their stories don’t make for gripping headlines in a country reluctant to even acknowledge their existence.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

More from Shaun King.

Guys, please share this everywhere. Shaun King exposed a very integral And deliberate LIE told by the chief of police to protect Darren Wilson, Mike Brown’s murderer. Shaun shows us with PICTURES that Mike Brown was over 100 feet away when Darren Wilson started shooting at him compared to what the STL PD are saying which is that Mike was 35 feet away. They lied about this purposely because officers are encouraged to protect themselves when someone who poses a threat is within 35 feet. Mike Brown was over 100 feet away. He posed no threat. Share this everywhere.

Man they’re truly willing to do anything to justify the killing of this boy.
